iPad Air flunks torture test - screen cracks after short drop on dirt mound (video)

"Takes a licking and keeps on ticking" does not seem to be a slogan suited to Apple's new iPad Air, at least based on some recent tests performed on the new lightweight tablet.

A video shows the iPad Air dropped from about five feet face down into a mound of dirt that, admittedly seems to have a lot of little rocks in it, but the results are disastrous, the iPad Air's screen is completely destroyed.

The iPad Air is also dropped onto concrete, immersed in water and, in a danger few are likely to face, blown apart by an AirSoft M7 air gun. 

If you bought an iPad Air without insurance or Apple's AppleCare+, that might be something to reconsider.
